Metahuman, no eyebrows or eyelashes in one project

I’m not sure when it started, but the eyebrows and eyelashes are missing from my metahuman:

I have her set to LOD 2.

As a test, I created a fresh project and re-imported the same metahuman, and her eyebrows and eyelashes display normally:

In both of these screenshots, I have the eyebrows selected in the outliner, but for some reason on the first metahuman, they aren’t even highlighted.

I’ve searched a while now for ways to fix this, and nothing has worked yet.

Does anyone have an idea?

Hi there,
There are some hair assets that are available only with LOD 0 and 1. If you set LOD 2, they will disappear. You can see the assets marked with this restriction in the Metahuman Creator. But it might be just a bug in the case of eyelashes and eyebrows. You want to check the UE 5.0.3 release notes.

Thanks for the reply. In both screenshots they are set to LOD 2, so I don’t think that is the problem.

Could it have something to do with the UE version the project was originally created in? I made that test project recently, so it is 5.0.3, but the original project was earlier, probably 5.0, I think.

I’m having the same issue with the city sample crowd. Setting the min LOD to 2 does fix it but would be nice to use LOD1 & 0 again. I don’t see any groom asset for eyebrows, starting to wonder if there ever was :confused: I’ll have to run some tests I guess!

Hi there,
It seems that enabling the Alembic import plugin fixes some issues with groom assets. Give it a try.
